We just love surfing! We love the beach and the waves. We love the challenge of riding the different waves, with their different strengths and different lengths. It brings us a different kind of high when we ride the waves and in those moments when we are inside the waves of the ocean, everything is perfect. Everything is bliss. And as the wave passes and carries you back to the shore, there is a feeling of accomplishment. It also evokes the feeling of being one with the ocean and playing with its waves. But the thing with being one with the ocean is that you have to know how to protect it as well. Or else there won’t be any ocean to play with. For true blooded surfers, the ocean is more than our playground. It is our home. And we have to take care of it every way we can.
Surf’s up! This is an idiomatic phrase that means you have to do something. It is time to do something. Just like how we call the Tempe garage door repairmen to fix problems in our garage and put it back in proper order. We want to promote the love for surfing and at the same time spread awareness regarding the importance of taking care of our ocean. That is why we came up with these surfboards that are environment-friendly. Since the most important gear for surfing is our surfboard, we have decided to go green with the boards that we use.
Malama Composites Inc. was established when there was a gap in the market for composites used in surfboards. The previous manufacturer was shut down because officials found out that the materials they used for the surfboard composites were not safe for the environment and for the people. Some of the materials were even proven to be carcinogenic. The materials that they used before were petroleum-based, which meant that they were non-renewable and harmful to the environment. After the shutdown, surfers looked for ways to develop sustainable and environment-friendly products used as core materials for surfboard making. And Malama Composites Inc. rose to the challenge. We have researched the composition of different materials that could be used for surfboard blanks. The surfboard blanks are the core materials used to manufacture surfboards. These are usually made from polyurethane or expanded polystyrene. Unfortunately, these materials used to be solely petroleum-based. But Malama Composites Inc. found a way to develop eco-friendly foams using the clean chemistry of plant-based resins. The technology behind it allowed Malama Composites Inc. to make core materials for surfboards that are durable, light-weight, affordable, sustainable, and environment-friendly. Malama Composites Inc. now offers premium core materials to help the growth of the surfboard industry. The company has stayed true to its ideals and mission to take care of the ocean and spread the love for surfing.
Malama Composites Inc. advocates green living. Let us all do our part in taking care of our planet.
